    No and why would they. It would eliminate for women the same experience they get in real life. It's really the only advantage of using a free site versus using a non-free site. At a free site everybody can msg - At a paid site somebody is paying x amount of money. So chances are, as a woman, you're going to get a drastically smaller request for TATAs on match.com as oppposed to POF.

    Yeah, I was thinking of the free sites. How hard would it be to filter out emails that contain keywords and alterations of them? There must be one helluva database of variants that can eliminate most of the garbage.

    Most of them are already fighting a losting battle with porn bots and unfortunately when you're doing something for free it means just that. You probably don't have the money to devote to nothing but analyzing all messaging/interaction on the site to determine if somebody may find it offensive, oppressive, aggressive or otherwise.

    I think if you go to sites that are free of charge most people on there are mostly looking for a hook up, attention or just be a big waste of time. Haven't tried the paid sites yet. I've only had one successful relationship from a dating site. Most of them are pretty vapid, don't know what they want or are typical in my opinion lol. I have quite a few stories to share too lol. My friend who is a guy has a online profile says no girls ever sends him messages and he has a blog with the messages that they reply with. I think it's pretty funny.

    Don't know if I'll ever return.

    I never thought of this as being an attribute, but I always keep my toilet seat and lid down when I'm not using it; it curbs my cat's bizarre fascination with the toilet. Maybe I should get a custom t-shirt made that reads, "Hey ladies - I leave the toilet seat down."

    I thought cat & dog owners *always* kept the lid down,
    and cat owners always mount the toilet paper with the free end coming off the back.

    I was actually surprised when one girl told me she was getting tons of e-mail asking to see her tatas. In order to send e-mails on match.com, you have to be registered. Who spends that kind of money every month just to ask random girls to see their tatas? Are they not aware the internet is filled with free porn?

    Registration is free. Sending messages is not free.. I honestly have a bit of trouble believing that is anything but a slight exaggeration. Though who knows. Three things that Know no bounds, people's stupidity, men's horniness and our tendency to embellish.

    Male or female...everyone do this and nobody is falling in, sticking their foot in, or bobbing for apples.

    Generally the only women who will take the initiative and msg guys initially are the same people in real life with the only exception being that it's harder to get caught for prostitution so you will often times have a higher ratio of spam bots/call girls.

    I think that people that think that online dating doesn't work any more than what most people do in the real world, hitting on coworkers at work, hitting on strangers at a bar or club is because people simply forget to correlate it to real world things.
    That sounds like too much work, I think I'll jut go ride my bike instead.

    I agree with the skyping pumpkin, probably an exaggeration. I think men do that because some women will send pics of their “tatas” back.

    Except for the ones you have to roll up, like Ron White said. Wait, he even wanted to see those. Nevermind.

    If it's 2 am I don't turn on the lights.

    I just don't like open toilets in general. An upraised seat can have dried splashes of stuff that I really don't want to see. And it's bad feng shui.

    On toilet seats... have been leaving them down forever and this is especially important when you have cats, dogs, and little girls who get up to use the bathroom when they are half asleep.

    I never knew Feng Shui covered toilet lids.

    I never really thought about it, but just realized that I do always lower the lid, simply because there is a shelf just above my toilet where all my assorted containers of deodorant/mouthwash/etc are kept, and if the lid was open there would be a high risk of something getting knocked into it.

    I may need to give up my Man Card.

    Ok with all this talk about toilet seats and cats I am now paranoid. I have never seen the little bastard drink or get in to it, but who knows what he is up to when I am not at home. Probably planning to take over the world.
    I see hills.... Bring them on!!!
